VFL on 7 in 2015
Frankston,Coburg almost certain not have any games under new deal. Port Melb and Willy to have limited games.
Expect Channel 7 to choose games only involving AFL aligned sides. It is what rates?
Almost Certain that TV games will be at 12:10pm on Sundays.
Better than no coverage. That the coverage is on #7 doesn't really make sense if the AFL is playing more 2pm Saturday games, unless those games are on Foxtel.
It will be different that's for sure!
Sponsorship will be tougher, but I think Ports crowds may improve.
I'd love to see channel 7 cover a second game.
Article on The Age website confirms the games will be played (and shown live) at 12.10pm on Saturday afternoons, as a lead in to 7's delayed 3pm AFL broadcast.
McGuire Media is producing the calls (like they do with the SANFL)... and I just shot them a quick email *fingers crossed*
Good move Pete.

Reply to post #2:
I would like to see AFL Victoria come out and guarantee all clubs will get a TV game next season.
Biggest fear is with Channel 7 choosing games clubs like Frankston & Coburg will miss out as Channel 7 will want to cover AFL aligned sides each week as they would rate better.
